Jones & Company has been collaborating with Grip Limited in Canada to create content for the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) for over a year.

These illustrations cover all aspects of the brand, from lifestyle illustrations to icons to GIFs, and can be seen online, on their app, in print, and even on the side of their trucks!
Kim Neale | Coca Cola
CGI artist Kim Neale brought the iconic Coca-Cola Polar Bear family back to life for Coca-Cola’s 2019 Holiday campaign. Collaborating with the brilliant team at Momentum/Saint Louis & Atlanta, Neale used her CGI expertise to recreate the classic Coca-Cola Polar Bear motif. The beloved bears can be seen on cans, bottles, and multipacks, as well as billboards and posters wherever you can buy Coca-Cola.
This year, the Coca-Cola Polar Bears excitedly introduce us to their new limited-edition Coca-Cola Cinnamon!
